Quit Smoking with Support and Accountability from the Freedom Quitline


Have you thought about quitting smoking? Are you tired of the expense, odor, and constant hassle of trying to find a place and time to smoke? Do you want to maximize your chances for a long, healthy life? If so, maybe it’s time to quit.

Quitting smoking can be a challenge, but if you think you may be ready, there is help available to make quitting easier. The Freedom Quitline offers nicotine replacement treatment at no cost mailed directly to your home, plus guided telephone counseling and support to maximize your chances of success.

That help from Freedom Quitline was just what former smoker Tim, from Clio, Michigan, needed when he decided it was time to quit.

“I liked everything about the program,” said Tim. “It was very easy to participate, very convenient. The calls were on time and the patches always arrived on time. The counselor was very supportive, always made himself available if I needed any help between sessions. He genuinely cared about my health and my needs.”

The accountability of the Freedom Quitline helped Tim, as well: “If I had to do it on my own I would have slipped. My health is better, I have saved a lot of money and my wife is happy.”

Imagine your tobacco-free life. Take a deep breath, give the Freedom Quitline a call, and start a life free from the hassles of smoking. Call 1-844-I-AM-FREE (1-844-426-3733) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (CDT). 

Freedom Smoking Quitline is a National Institutes of Health-funded research study co-sponsored by 59th Medical Wing, Joint Base San Antonio, Lackland, Texas and the University of Virginia.
